Run hits dollar goal

The annual Kettle River Run added a few more donations and raised over $13,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation of the Southern Interior.

In their four years of existence the JLB Memorial Kettle River Run has raised over $40

Organizers of the 2013 JLB Memorial Kettle River Run have issued a new tally of donations this year and the revised total puts them over their goal of raising $12,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation of the Southern Interior.

Registrations on the day of the run brought the total to almost $9,200 and an additional pledge in the amount of $4,000 from Dr. D. Vallis ‘In Memory of Walter Cox’ put the run over the top with more than $13,000.

In the four years the run has been going approximately $40,000 has been raised. “Next year is our fifth anniversary, I hope that many more people will register for the event and help us raise money for emergency funds that help with gas, groceries and medical treatment,” said organizer Stephanie Boltz, adding that the JLB Memorial Run is no longer about John, it is for the many who have lost loved ones and/or for the people who are on the tough and long journey of appointments, blood tests, travel, and treatment and for the family members who watch.
